Okay, I have a feeling this is a pretty easy problem to solve, the only trouble is, my professor worded it(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); reallyweirdly, so I only have half an idea of what it's asking.

Any ideas?

-----------

Let the Electric field be E at a point P near a conductiong material. Because of electrostatic induction, the force on a charge q at P will not yield E. Show, however, that the average of the fields of two equal and opposite charges +q and -q gives the correct value: E=(F_{q+}-F_{q-})/2q.

------------

From what I can gather, it's asking me to prove the average E field of a dipole is that.

Thanks.

EDIT:

Nevermind, I just figured it out.
